Honeybees have a distinct look and are usually a black or brown color. Around their bodies they have yellow bands. These six legged creatures grow to be about 3/4 inches long and are generally not dangerous pests. The only time they sting is if they feel as though they are being threatened or their colony is being disturbed. Honeybees are social creatures and provide benefits to people such as producing honey and beeswax. Some people even create their own beehive so that that they can produce honey or wax creations. These insects live in colonies that consist of a queen, worker honeybees and drones. The queen lives anywhere from 3-5 years, drones for a season and workers for a few months. The workers pollinate fruits, flowers and vegetables. If you are stung by a honeybee, make sure to remove the barbed stinger right away.
